The NBA All-Star Game is in Orlando this year, and do you know what happens near Orlando? NASA. In celebration of NASA (and the All-Star Game) Nike is releasing a batch of galactic-themed sneakers. Man, these are gorgeous.
At the All-Star Game, Kobe, Lebron and Kevin Durant will be wearing special versions of their signature sneakers. The new special edition versions of the LeBron 9, Nike Zoom KD IV and designed to look like space suits -- Lebron's shoe looks like the orange pressure suits astronauts wear during take-off, Durant's shoe is modled after the silver Mercury space suit. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII System shoe, on the other hand, is designed to look like a supernova.
And right before the game, you're going to be able to get your hands on a pair of the awesome shoes from Nike's Space Exploration Pack, which consists of special "galaxy" editions of the Nike Dunk, Flight One and Foamposite models, which are also cloaked in supernova imagery and standard issue military and space suit designs. The shoes will drop into the NikeStore online on February 23rd, right before the NBA All-Star Game on February 26. [Global Grind and Freshness Mag]
